I’ve thrown Halloween parties since I was eight years old. Now in my early forties I’m stoked Halloween is starting to take off in Australia. It gets shit canned as crass Americanisation, which is something Aussies get very passionate about. People of Celtic heritage, such as myself, fire up like a ginger in the sun when this is brought up as a point of view. American? Samhain is as Celtic as whiskey!
The mini was tarted up with a lick of paint, reset coping and a few cross beams in the bits getting saggy. The old girl was ready for a hiding, and that sure happened – copping it sweet, but still serving up several beatings of her own.
You can’t go wrong with a good crew, cranked tunes, BBQ and plenty of beers. Cheers for coming along and for the laughs.
Shout out to my very tolerant neighbours for not calling the cops!
